7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By The Mystic Eye Of The Hipster on June 7, 2010
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Too often, books on "weird history" are LONG on the "weird", and very, very SHORT on "history".
But here, we get a good, well-written history of Chicago.
Spooky stuff is not lacking, but a good picture of Chicago's odd & occasionally bloody history emerges.

Pleasant to read, well-illustrated, & absorbing. Thumbs up for a book both fun & informative.

A recommendation to the authors for the next edition: include a map of the city.

The Hipster gives it a Big Thumbs UP!

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Crabby Abby TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on November 18, 2010
Format: Paperback
I am reviewing the second edition of this book. What attracted me to it initially was its hip cartoonish cover which was reminiscent of '70's pop art. You might say that I knew this book was going to be fun and more than a little bit off-beat.
I wasn't disappointed. It was everything I thought it would be, but I was also treated to a cornocopia of Chicago lore with a tour guide thrown in.
Exactingly accurate as well as informative, this book is interesting and well-done. It doesn't matter if you know everything there is to know about Chicago or have never visited the place. This book has something for everyone and topics range from organized crime, baseball, oddball tourist attractions, folklore, cemetery tours, history, fun trivia and beyond. The authors as well as their contributors know their subject(s) and it shows.

Good history book about Chicago, very informative, but there are no actual ghost stories. Being a Haunted Illinois Book I was expecting ghost stories. It's still a good read if from or interested in Chicago history.
